Birnbeck Pier Weston Super Mare
Competition entry for the regeneration of derelict Birnbeck Pier
Our proposal turned the decaying Birnbeck pier into an island. Reached by bridge, the island was conceived as a sunken theatre, lying in the water like a rock pool. Floating pontoons rise and fall with the tide and create linking structures which retain the tidal waters at differential rates, some used for farming marine life to create a stunning sunken theatre and winter garden.
